The beer pours a murky cola colored brown. Tan head holds up well and clings to my glass. Nice fruity scent of cherry, banana, and plum. Taste is more of the same fruity flavors with a touch of toffee, molasses and allspice. Really well integrated flavor profile. Medium to light body. Carbonation is fairly high. Mild alcohol warmth and sweetness. Enjoyable beer.

Pours brown with a large creamy khaki head that stays and leaves a coating. Nose is a bit boozy with some fruity esters and darker malt fruits...also a hint of tartness. Taste is loaded with creamy caramel...almost like a high ABV winter warmer. Dark fruit, some residual sugars, and booze. Mouthfeel was a touch rough with high carbonation, which seems to be characteristic of all this brewery's beers. Overall, excellent, and my favorite of the De Dolls lineup.

Dark, ruddy brown beer with a tan head. This beer smells like prunes, raisins, earth, minerals, burnt sugar, apples and sweet plums. The taste is prune juice, apples and raisins with a burnt sugar sweetness and bitterness. The beer continues to stream carbonation from the nucleation site throughout the drink, I am a bit biased toward Belgian beers but this one is quite good. I would drink this again.

Reviewed in "Michael Jackson's Great Beers of Belgium", this awaits my review with another tasting.
Oerbier is also reviewed in the "1001."
